Civil War II: Sumpter in Seattle


Radical elements of the anti-American #altleft have fired what are unarguably the first shots in the second American Civil War every sentient conservative has seen coming. By grabbing 6 city blocks, running the police and national guard to a strategic withdraw, and declaring the area an autonomous zone which is outside of the USA, the fringe has dropped the mask of “change” and “reform” and declared a Civil War in Seattle.  

A unified America must crush them.

For years we have placated the growing anti-American left, which has hid under various labels, from Antifa to progressives, to BLM. They share a common thread. They don’t want to be part of a common American culture. They neither respect nor seek to reform law through the civil society. They want to “fundamentally transform” America by destroying the rule of law and the pillars of economic liberty. 

Some have treated them as “protestors.” Others claim they are but a new generation of democrats seeking “democratic socialism,” which commentators and academic rubes claim to be consistent with democracy and American life. Conservatives have always viewed these groups and their members as subversives. We identified them radicals at war with America, not citizens moving for change through the civil society.

They are rioters, looters, and murders They are baby killers, open borders radicals, and flag burners. They are an awful lot of humanity looking to spread the sick virus of socialism, speech codes, tribalism, racial division, and so-called economic justice through mob violence, intimidation, and hate. The soft left has forgiven them their sins to get votes. The independents have ignored them, the republicans have been cowed by them, and conservatives … we have not been fooled.

Conservative patriots no longer want to play pattycake with people who hate America, burn our flag, kill our children, excuse crime, forgive pedophiles, push drugs, redistribute wealth, disrespect our laws, and flip off the civil society. But our leaders have been handcuffed. The media treats these people and organizations like victims. It whitewashes their hate and violence and smears those who stand up to it as intolerant or … of course … racists.

The media pushes the demonstrably false narratives that feed this movement, such as “income inequality,” “economic justice,” “social justice,” “institutional racism,” and “immigrant rights.”  Somehow, law-abiding, god-fearing, married, working, decent Americans have been made to feel like the bad guy. Why? We won’t burn our flag, kneel during our anthem, admit we are all racists, defund our police, open our borders, murder our children, surrender our guns, and empty our jails.

The recent outbreak of radial left violence, murder, looting, death and destruction by the #altleft and their allies have fractured America completely. Most thoughtful Americans can’t figure out what is going on. Seriously. A bad cop caused the death of a criminal suspect in custody. He was fired immediately and charged in nearly record time after an investigation. Yet, the altleft has burned our cities, killed, looted, and made a series of completely ridiculous demands based on the demonstrably false premise that white officers pose a substantial risk to black defendants. The research shows that to be untrue … in every way.

Justice denied, is justice betrayed.  

We owe these protestors nothing, except a better education. We owe the rioters and looters the swift justice the bad cop received, as well as having them fired from their jobs and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Their movement and leaders are owed public shame for kowtowing to racists, rubes, and haters.

Now, in Seattle, we have fish of a different kettle. It was just a matter of time before the anti-Americans ripped off the veneer of “dissent” and hoisted their flag of rebellion to topple American authority and declare their own government. That isn’t merely being policeless in Seattle.

The Seattle action is an act of civil war. It’s open rebellion. It is a denunciation of American authority and the legitimacy of our laws and sovereignty. That’s not my spin. That’s based on their words, their demands, and their actions. They posted a sign declaring autonomy and stating that by entering their zone, “you are now leaving the USA.”  They demanded the abolition of the police and the courts in their city. They used force to occupy and take American soil and to declare it something other than a part of the sovereign.

The altleft now has its Fort Sumpter. The War is on.

We must meet them with immediate, overwhelming, and unrepentant force. We must retake those city blocks by force as needed, capturing the rebels, hunting down their conspirators, and trying them in military tribunals as enemy combatants.

To do less would be to encourage the uprising. To do less would be to normalize the behavior. To do less would be un-American.

The line has been crossed … the enemy has been identified. You’re either with the Americans or you’re against us.
